Watch the moment a mum pushes her baby to safety just before she’s smashed on the head by falling concrete.

In the CCTV footage, the woman is seen opening the door to a building before returning to the pushchair and moving it forward with the young child inside – a split second before she’s knocked out by the concrete slab.

The 31-year-old was rushed to a hospital in St Petersburg, Russia, where she was treated for serious head injuries and is reported to be in critical condition.

The concrete slab flew off a balcony as she pushed her child towards a residential building on Yaroslav Gashek Street, and it landed exactly where the pushchair was standing just seconds earlier.

Police are looking for witnesses as they investigate the incident.
